Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, Jon said; "Neil has been excellent for us. We offered him a contract extension earlier this season and whilst we understand he is assessing his options, we have made him a further contract offer in a bid to retain his services.

"Matty Preston has continued to improve and has worked hard behind the scenes to establish himself as a member of the first-team squad. Liam has enjoyed a prosperous loan spell at Chester and we hope to continue developing him as a goalkeeper."
